Yes, Yoga 3x a Week Can Help Prevent Spinal Surgery

Yoga may not alter the trajectory of family genetics in a lifetime, but it can prevent the need for spinal surgery.

Renowned orthopedic surgeon Gary Michelson, MD and founder of the Gary Michelson Medical Research Foundation (MMRF) says that, “In essence, being in good shape, having good core strength, and good flexibility is protective against many of the conditions that would have otherwise gone on to lead to spinal surgery. That having been said, there are those conditions which arise from structural defects in the spinal column that are probably not amenable to relief by exercise.”

The virus lurks in the dorsal root ganglion like a terrorist waiting. Blindsided and forgotten like chickenpox, when it surfaces, the shingles’ rash can look like an alien reptile has left its imprint on your skin and is sometimes referred to as “the devil’s grip.” The varicella-zoster virus has shadowed the human race for thousands of years causing chickenpox and later in life shingles. Although researchers are investigating the phenomenon of the herpes virus’s unique ability to replicate itself, as of yet, no known cure exists to oust it from the body, where it dwells in the ganglia and, along with other unwanted guests, in the liver. The best solution, like dealing with a difficult mother-in-law, is to coexist.

Consciousness, Cooperation, and Communication: Healing DID

It wasn’t until after Karin’s fourth suicide attempt that the mental illness she’d battled her whole life finally began to make sense.

Seated in a hospital conference room with a psychiatrist, the doctor asked her if she understood bipolar disorder, which she knew she had. She told him yes and that she understood why she took meds for it. Then he asked if she realized there was a name for the other symptoms she was experiencing. She told him no, that she thought it was all part of being bipolar.

Yoga Cures:  Surviving the Here and Now

“One of the underlying powers of yoga is a balancing of the autonomic nervous system,” says Dr. David Riley, editor-in-chief, Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine and clinical associate professor, University of New Mexico Medical School and medical research director, Integrative Medicine. “Yoga with its flowing rhythm of postures and deep breathing can reset the point of balance in the ANS, lower blood pressure, reduce stress and stimulate the overall immune function.” For women living life in today’s world, the responsibility of balancing job and family, the pressure to eat right and look good on top of concern about hereditary illness can trigger an ANS imbalance manifesting itself in a variety of diseases.
